Play’n GO have announced the release of their latest slot, Rise of Olympus; an adventure based on the mighty gods of Greek legend.
Rise of Olympus allows players to harness the powers of Hades, Poseidon and, king of the gods, Zeus to aid them in their quest for power and riches. It’s a cascading grid slot, following the format of previous popular titles such as Sweet Alchemy and Reactoonz, an area of slot gaming where Play’n GO are leading the market.
The concept is inspired by the one of the most popular mythologies in history, the game was carefully crafted to bring some of the more popular elements of these well-known characters into the world of slot gaming.
The game also provides each character with their own unique symbol, and a bonus feature based around their unique power set, helping the players to bigger wins and giving them a chance to find their favourite character.
CEO Johan Törnqvist feels the attention to detail will not only catch the eye of players but will also resonate with them:
“Everyone is familiar with Greek mythology so, if you are going to base a game around it, you have to do it right. I believe that the attention paid to the style of these characters will pique a player’s interest; and that the uniqueness and the detail of their characteristics will enhance their gameplay experience”
He also believes that the design of such well-known characters presents its own challenges:
“The Gods themselves are very popular indeed, and this can make it hard to find a unique, and fitting, style for each, as they appear in so many forms already. The key is to make them familiar enough to be recognised but still put your own unique spin on their design; it’s not always easy to find the right balance with such well-known characters but I think our team did an excellent job with making the vision into a reality”
